Claddagh Ring by Ricksonjewellery

I like this update on the Claddagh design. I wanted to make a Claddagh with ASCII art and may use the hands in this way. Much easier than showing all the fingers (hard to get narrow lines that close together unless I make the Claddagh in a pretty large size). I found a crown on another Claddagh which I like too, a vintage ring I posted to Pinterest.

Canada Coats of Arms Emblems Tea Cup

Vintage (1960’s) Canadiana teacup and saucer. I am so very tempted to buy this set. But, it’s a bit pricey to consider with shipping and then… I’d feel awful if it came damaged during delivery. I think that bothers me more than spending the money on it. Yet…. I haven’t closed the page from Etsy.

Upcycle Jewels into Fridge Magnets

It’s a simple project and only involves a couple of steps: pop off the backs of your jeweled earrings/broaches with wire cutters, then attach a magnet with super glue.  Presto!  You’ve got yourself a blinged out fridge magnet.  Mega impact for the absolute minimum amount of effort.  Or, in other words, my kind of DIY project.

I love finding ideas for upcycling broken brooches into something else you can use everyday, like this.
